The Bill Raskob Foundation is a small family foundation set up to give deserving students interest-free student loans.
William Frederick Raskob, II
Since ours is a small foundation, we take a personal interest in each of the students we help with an interest-free student loan.
The Bill Raskob Foundation was created in 1928 by John J. Raskob and Helena S. Raskob in memory of their son, William Frederick Raskob, II.
Bill was the second of 13 children, a devout Catholic and a student at Yale University, when he was killed in an automobile accident at age 20.
In his short lifetime, he demonstrated an unselfish desire to help those in trouble and need. To that end, the Bill Raskob Foundation was established, commemorating Bill and carrying out his wish to help others.
